This past Sunday, I did an Instagram livestream (follow me @happyblackwoman) from my kitchen while cooking dinner and listening to 90s R&B music.

Inspired by Congresswoman Maxine Waters now-viral video, I recently did a Facebook livestream on the topic of “Reclaiming Your Time.” The word reclaim means “to take back.” Meaning that it was already yours, but somehow you ended up giving it away to someone or something else. As women – and especially as black women – we often give...

The #1 factor that holds black women back from achieving their goals, fulfilling their purpose and becoming happy in life is not what you might think. It’s not society. It’s not the economy. It’s not even our historical background. It’s OURSELVES. Why is that? Because whenever we have a big goal, there is A LOT of resistance that comes...

Even though I live a location-independent lifestyle, one of the ways I like to feel like I’m “at home” is by renting an apartment every once in a while instead of staying in a hotel.

The service I use the most for this is Airbnb.

It’s basically an Expedia meets Yelp concept that allows people to rent out their homes to travelers with a website where you can search for places to stay based on location, price, etc. It also provides a rating and review system for hosts so that any sketchy places with rude hosts get weeded out.

I’ve stayed in Airbnbs all over the world from Charlottesville, Virginia to Rome, Italy to Baltimore, Maryland to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico and now Honolulu, Hawaii!

It’s great having an entire network of hosts who provide a wide variety of short and long-term furnished housing in most cities around the world. You can choose to rent the whole apartment or house, or simply rent a room. (I’ve done both and I prefer having the whole place to myself!)

What I also appreciate about Airbnb is that the price of your apartment or room rental will typically be much less than you would pay for a hotel, especially in large metropolitan areas that have a high cost of living.

I made a quick apartment tour video of the Airbnb I’m renting while I’m here in Honolulu, Hawaii if you’re curious about what they are like and how you can incorporate this option into your travels!

I’ve been living a location-independent, minimalist, nomadic lifestyle for a while now and the hardest question for me to answer is:

“Where do you live?”

Because the truth is, I don’t live anywhere!

I don’t have a permanent home address.

Everything I own fits into a suitcase.

And because my entire business is run online, I get to travel wherever and whenever I want as long as I have money and a laptop.

To some, this is crazy.

To me, this is FREEDOM.

Here are some of the questions I get asked the most when I tell people, “I don’t live anywhere.”‘

What many people don’t realize is that I didn’t just make an impulsive decision one day to leave my job.

“I’d rather regret the things I’ve done than regret the things I haven’t done.” – Lucille Ball

My grandmother always taught me that the way you end the old year is how you will begin the new one.

Since I had decided that 2015 was going to be the year of “fun, love and adventure,” I wanted to do something to honor that theme for my 32nd birthday on December 31, 2014 – the very last day of the year.

And that’s how I ended up jumping out of a plane in Playa del Carmen, Mexico!

I gave myself the gift of SKYDIVING, which was pretty much one of the scariest and most rewarding things I’ve ever done.

Check out the video of my jump below! I booked my tandem jump with Skydive Playa and they took good care of me throughout the process.

“People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.” — Paulo Coelho

Are you happy with your life as it is right now?

Or are you postponing your happiness until later?

If you find yourself constantly living in the future while being miserable in the present, you might be holding yourself back from being happy.

You might be delaying your happiness until certain circumstances change in your life.

If you’ve been holding yourself back from doing what you really want to do with your life, the video below could help you shift your mindset.

Contrary to popular belief, it is totally possible to build a successful business while you still have a 9 to 5 job. In my case, I started my first business as a consultant back in 2008 while I was still working at a nonprofit in DC. My little “side hustle” grew to the point when I was earning a nice supplemental income and ultimately enabled me to leave my job less than 2 years later.

Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to mentor numerous women in our Happy Black Woman community, helping them to stop procrastinating and finally get their businesses off the ground. Now, some women are perfectly happy to build an additional income stream on the side, but most ladies that come to me for help are looking to eventually be able to quit their jobs so they can live life on their own terms. The problem is…there are usually a few key pieces missing from their plan.

If you’ve been longing to grow your side hustle into a full-time business, you might be missing one of the following things. In the video below, I walk you through a handy list to guide you in building the momentum you need to move forward!
